Thanks for the query.

Your test was done two days back and the reports were all normal.

You also complain of stomach problems. Stomach pain, diarrhea are common side effects of this tablet. You should take the tablet 30 minutes to 1 hour before breakfast, on an empty stomach, along with a glass of water.

If you continue getting these problems, you will need to discuss with your Physician.
Stopping the tablet may cause recurrence of the problem. Till then please continue it.

The doctor may consider altering/reducing the doses, you will have to discuss this with him.

Hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
